My (29m) wife (30f) and I have a four year old son. As Halloween approached this year, my son let me know that he wanted to dress up as characters from his favorite show at the moment. These aren’t costumes that are readily available to buy, so I was going to have to do some crafting magic and make them.
I’m a stay at home father and my wife is something of a workaholic. She could cut down on her hours if she wished, but she’s always been a very work driven/focused person. She’s not very maternal. Because of this, my son has never been very attached to her.
They have time together at dinner, but even during times when my wife is off work (like during bath time and bed time) it’s always just me. This isn’t me complaining; I signed on for the SAHD life and I enjoy every minute of it. I just wish, for his sake, that she would be more involved.
